*Can One Little Owl Make a Difference?"

This busy little owl can't stand still. Everything seems to be in an uproar around it. Do you ever feel as if you are constantly moving but nothing is getting done?

Owl Sketch of the Day is back!

This little sweetie loves flowers--and he gets all kinds of bullying because of it. I have a soft spot for him!

I've promised to create a sketch a day until my book, "Misho of the Mountain," comes out this summer. I'm not the illustrator of "Misho." That's the talented Teri Rider. Wait until you see her illustrations! Her beautiful drawings of Tomo, Misho's best friend, are my inspiration to try my hand at creating some owls of my own.

Am I a slacker if I skip a day of owl sketches? Kusa Kitty escaped the cat-proof catitat last night. He's back but no sleep for me! He was gone 5-10 hours, and he has never been outside here.

The poor fellow camped out under the front yard bushes when he returned--right next to the automatic sprinkler--that is loud and powerful. When I found him (after the sprinkler went off) he looked like he'd just returned from kitty hell. He had been trapped while the infernal machine doused the garden right next to his ear.

It was well after midnight. He wouldn't let me pick him up for about 30 minutes. He was yowling like he was pursued by demons. I thought he'd been hit by a car or ravaged by coyotes. Once I got him inside, it took a while to make sure he was okay and didn't need a trip to the emergency clinic.

But he's right as rain! And I'm exhausted. So maybe I can do two owls tomorrow?

"Must your statements be so blaring?" "I said nary a thing!" "I grant that's true, still I stand deaf. I think it's what you're wearing."

Can a leopard change its spots?

If I could be whatever I wish, I'd be a fishing owl who never eats fish. Owl Sketch of the Day 20170425

Standing Out, Balancing Risk with Freedom

“Must your statements be so blaring?”
“I said nary a thing!”
“I grant that’s true, still I stand deaf.
I think it’s what you’re wearing.”
